questions to the team and those presentations and answers were scored as well. hrc staff reviewed each of the proposals and awarded bonus points and a letter is attached to the item. all three of the winning teams actually received the bonus points, and again those were parsons and jb and deangelo, ags so each of the master contracts will have a three year term and with an option of the port to extend them for additional year. each contract will have a not to exceed limit of 1.5 million dollars over the total life of the contracts. i am happy to answer questions that the commission have and we have peter here to answer any questions you have. >> so moved. >> second. >> any public comment? commissioners? questions or comments? all in favor? >> aye. >> thank you. >> item 10b accept the port's quarterly report on contracting activities for fiscal year 2012-2013 to december 2012 to 2013. >> go down to the very bottom in the left hand corner and see a video projector. keep going. there you go. >> andre again. we say the best for last. so today i am presenting the quarterly report o
approval. >> just a question for you. we also have a program to the hrc to provide surety bonding program for small businesses. i understand that the reduction in the bonding requirement would assist small businesses in general. has the small business commission also helped to reach out with the small vendors, parking vendors who may participate in the parking program? >> we did not reach out in the hrc program. we have one of our commissioners is in the industry. he provided a little bit of expertise, but we did not reach out in relation to the hrc program on this matter. >> and again, we're attacking it from different ways. one is to reduce the bonding requirement for the vendors, which makes sense to me. i think that sounds good. we may also want tone courage people to look into some of the programs that we have for surety bonding. >> and i'll follow-up on that. thank you, chair. >> thank you. okay. thank you. why don't we open this item up for public comment. are there any members of the public who wish to speak on item number 10? >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is tim [speak
organizations like glad and nclr, hrc. we try to convince most people in society that gay people are the same as everybody else except for the genders of our partners and i don't see this even though it's represented as such, as a gay issue. we are diverse as any population. we go to work. we pay bills. some are property owners. some are renders. we cover every religious background from all over the world so i find it somewhat offensive for this to be framed as a gay issue and i don't find it as such. as a gay women we have children and grandchildren and we don't like seeing the naked guys in the castro and i appreciate what you're doing in pushing this legislation. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> my name is susan thompson. i have lived on the edge of doris park and 20th street for 30 years. i support the legislation. an example -- more than once i of on castro street at my bank and encountered the naked people and i find it very objectionable. recently i wanted to catch the f streetcar and i walked up and real quick scan to see where not to look, and
with the other major institutions. >> chad, you're the export. i supported it, my wife has for years. hrc, you have a hell of a great name, human rights campaign, great name. >> life, liberty and property cannot be denied except by due process of law. you have to break a law to lose your liberty. it has to be a crime. you can't be denied liberty, your thoughts on that issue and how that can be used in this constitution. >> that's exactly right. is there no state right. the plaintiffs in this case, the fundamental right to marriage. chris, oftentimes, we get lost a bit talking about these things, talking about the politics and law. at the end of the day, there are fundamental lives at stake. when we filed this case, chris and sandy and jeff and paul had been together 10 years and now almost 12 years. chris and sandy's twin boys were just entering high school. when this case is heard, they'll be getting ready to graduate from high school. their moms deserve the same freedom to marry just as everyone else has in this country. >> isn't it true when we had this in the court at the appellate forward
on the issue. if that's the case, and the president wants to actually nominate here and hrc, which is actually the preeminent gay rights equality group in the country is out there saying they accept his apology for wa it's worth. i accept his apology. what's happening is the nominees who haven't been nominated yet that are being, i guess, in a way beaten down or voted down in the arena of public opinion before they even get to the chamber as an actual nominee. that's a problem. and that, to me, is you have a lot of senators, both on the left and the right doing these things. i'd rather the president just send up the nomination and let the senate do its will. >> does that mean this balloon has popped, it's not going tor anywhere? >> yeah, i suppose so. and that saddens me. frankly, i would like to see a republican over the department of defense. i would like to see a formerly anti-gay republican sitting in the secretary of defense getting rid of don't ask don't tell. i would like to hold his feet to the fire so that we can show the republican party can't evolve on this issue and you don't have
with democrats. he had this run in with the gay community. he is apologized. hrc accepted the apology. there is bad blood there. so michelle fornoi who the name has been floated, you know, have a woman secretary of defense. >> served in the obama defense department in the first term so actually someone who has worked for president obama. >> i think would be a much more probably popular choice. >> chris: a little over a minute left and we will go in it in length on panel plus. what did you think of wayne lapierre's statement? >> you could hear the collective gasps. stylistically and substantively what wayne said. i think the larger conversation you began and i thought it was a terrific interview with rick warren is what families are talking about this holiday season. enjoying time with the families but thinking of the connecticut families. i'm from connecticut and grew up not far from newtown. i personally as a mom am thinking about those mothers and fathers and i get teared up when i teen talk about it. i do believe that this rush to if we only had the assault weapons ban and the ban
out against a republican, and you have the liberal democratic groups, gay groups, like hrc human rights campaign saying we're with him after he makes this apology. it's almost like it's crazy day. i think there's one common threat through all of this, and that's that the republican caucus, the right-wing republican caucus losing olympia snow, losing other thoughtful members, is now so far to the right that no matter what barack obama says, does, thinks, uses his brain for, their answer is no, even if it's one of their own. >> i know you have a point you want to make, but isn't it also the fact that the people who oppose chuck hagel are the people who have been the most wrong on foreign policy, pretty much on everything for the last generation? right? there was a piece in the national journal in which he writes for too many lawmakers on capitol hill, nominating hagel would be too uncomfortable. it would be too uncomfortable to have him restored to power because he would be a living, nagging reminder of just how much they got wroonk. >> that's certainly arguable. there's nobody who
with the democrats and had a run in with the gay community and he apologized and hrc accepted it. but there is bad blood there and, michelle fornoy, is -- >> the obama -- the first term, actually, someone who worked for president obama. >> and i think it would be a more popular choice. >> chris: a little over a minute left and i want to go on, and we'll go on at length in the panel plus, what did you think of wayne lapierre's statement. >> you heard the collective gasp when he got up there, stylistically and substantively what wayne said and i think the larger conversation, that he began, i thought it was a terrific interview with rick warren is what families are talking about. this holiday season. they are enjoying their time with their families but thinking of the connecticut families and i'm from connecticut and i grew up not far from newtown and i personally as a mom, am thinking about the mothers and fathers and get teared up when i talk about it. the rush -- if we had the assault weapons ban and only the ban on the high capacity magazines, we wouldn't have the problems. i think it is wrong h
